Book Description

April 1990 0870496239 978-0870496233 First Edition
When Paul B. Steinmetz worked among the Oglala Lakota in South Dakota, he prayed with the Sacred Pipe, conversed with medicine men, and participated in their religious ceremonies.

Steinmetz describes the history, belief systems and contemporary ceremonies of three religious groups among the Oglala Lakota: traditional Lakota religion, the Native American Church, and the Body of Christ Independent Church, a small Pentecostal group. On the basis of these descriptions, Steinmetz discusses the interdynamics of Pipe, Bible, and Peyote, and offers a model for understanding Oglala religious identity. Steinmetz maintains that a sense of sacramentalism is essential in understanding Native American religions and that the mutual influence between Lakota religion and Christianity has been far more extensive than most scholars have suggested.

By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I am a Cree pipe carrier who has chosen to do a doctorate degree. I would like to weave my cultural path in with the demands of scholarly writings. I would like to write to the author about my dissertation and the truth of the Christian-Cree Path. Could you please forward my request to the author. My name is Grizzly Who Packs Good Medicine and I would be honoured to speak with the author.
